out in seattle. let me start with the job at hand. if you're president obama and want his presidency to proceed, what's the best way to gain control? get back on the side of americans that want to make life better with a better health care plan, a growing economy with progressive values. you focus on those who want those things opposed to those who like things the way they have been. you get people to choose not on a day to day but the big differences that separate obama from his right wing critics. and you build a team to sell it just as you must build a better team to govern this country starting with the execution of the affordable care act which puts accountability and transparency first. howard fineman is director for "the huffington post" media group and david corn from mother jones. howard, it's great to have you on and an important question. talk about the big picture president obama has been able to speak to the american people and tell a story. explain where we're headed and where we'd like to go and what we're up against and who we're up against. how does he do that starti

not to be the case. and that's on me. >> one of the architects of the affordable care act, otherwise known as obama care, joins us now, jonathan gruber. what do you think of the new fix, allowing people going to lose their insurance policies to keep them for another year? what's your reaction? >> my reaction is, i'm sorry we're in this situation. i think that when -- what the president said, exactly right, is the affordable care act is the minimally disruptive way to get to where we need get in america which is to fix our broken and discriminatory insurance markets. people in congress didn't think it was good enough. they wanted to fix the broken insurance markets and make sure no one lost. you can't do that. if you fix the brokeness insurance market some people benefitting from the broken market have to pay more. the president had to deal with the issue. i thought they dealt with it in an effective way by allowing one more year for people to keep their plans. it's a good solution because it takes pressure off the web failure, it gives people more time to sign up. >> to be fair to members of congre

care. california is crucial to the success of obama care. president obama doesn't have to sell california on the affordable care act. california is already pretty much sold on the health care law. the state-run exchange, calling it covered california, is up and running and running well. paul krugman wrote about the implementation and said that enrollment is surging. at this point, more than 10,000 applications are being completed per day putting the state well on track to meet its overall targets for 2014 coverage. he pointed out it matters who is signing up. young, healthy people are needed to keep costs down. one quarter of all enrollies are the healthy young people between 18-34. you can track this if you want. health care law is a success. maybe there has been better advertising there. maybe californians are more into health care. maybe the home to silicon valley couldn't stand the national embarrassment of creating a website that doesn't work. one definite reason why the health care law is working in california right now is because of that state's governor. it is a democra

. valerie and david axlerod are obama's two key advisers, one a campaign manager, and the other manages everything else. barack obama, valerie, david all were born into the same communist left that i was, all trained in the communist left, all graduated to the new left which was formed by red diaper babies like myself with the same political agendas, and they've never left it, and how do i know that? because i'm someone who did leave. now, i will tell you, if you are part of a movement that you come to understand it is deceitful when you get out, you repudiate it and warn other people about it, and they, of course, haven't. this is a mentality, and you have to understand -- as i say, my parents call themselves progressives. leftists may be delusional, but they are not stupid. they understand that you don't telegraph your agendas because that turns people off. when i was young, stalin was alive, the slogan of the american communism party was -- it was not solve yet america dictatorship, take away the wealth, and distribute it to our friends. their slogan was peace, jobs, and democracy. t
